Snorkeling = Thumbs up!!!
Jun 2021
Booked a private snorkeling trip for our vacation group of 9 adults. Captain Justin and Divemaster Jared took us to a cove on Little James Island. We had a range of skill levels in the group, which they were able to accommodate. The cove was awesome to explore. Everyone left with a greater knowledge of the fish, the area, and a fantastic experience to treasure.

Beautiful day snorkeling.
Feb 2021
We went on the boat with Wolfgang as our captain and had a great morning snorkeling. We went to Turtle Bay and Christmas Cove. Wolfgang was a great host and the ladies were wonderful guides in the water. We snorkeled while my brother and his wife scuba dived. My sister and her husband later dove for the first time and loved it. The water is clear and the guides are great. We enjoyed the morning on the boat and loved the rum punch!! It was a great day.

Beautiful and relaxing day
Jan 2021 • Friends
My friends and I had a wonderful time with Jess, Abby, and Floyd hosting us on the Aqua Marine boat. They took us to some great snorkeling spots where we saw a big variety of fish, coral, and other water life. Our guides pointed out all the varieties, and after finishing our snorkeling, we enjoyed captain floyd's rum punch! All in all a great day and would recommend!

Hi Holly! Thanks for giving us a great 5-star review! Jess, Abby, and Floyd had a great time meeting everyone in your crew, and we're glad you had such a wonderful experience. That rum punch really hits the spot after a day of snorkeling. ;-) We'll have some ready for your next visit.

Hi Prathmesh! So happy to hear our staff was able to help the snorkelers in your group overcome their fears and enjoy the beautiful ocean life around St. Thomas. Hopefully it will not be the last time you go exploring with us.

Fantastic afternoon snorkeling at Christmas Cove and Little St James. Experienced crew!
Mar 2020
We were greeted by Ana and Wolfgang at the marina before we boarded for our half-day snorkeling trip. My traveling companions had gone on several excursions with them previously and had told me what wonderful people they were and how well they were treated by them. They both were delightful.
Captain Mike and crewmate Jess took us out for the afternoon. They were both extremely courteous and helpful plus a lot of fun! This was my first time to snorkel. I am of small stature and both of them helped get me fitted with a very good mask and fins. There were both life preservers and noodles to assist in keeping us afloat if we wished. Jess was very helpful to me as I made my first effort.
Our first stop at Christmas Cove was exciting. Jess cautioned me about the coral and sea life that stung. She also informed us of the sea life we observed.
Captain Mike maneuvered the boat excellently even in what " I" considered rough water. He showed us interesting sights around the different small islands and then took us to Little St James. The snorkeling there proved to be very thrilling! The schools of fish were amazing and many brightly colored fish were all around the various types of coral and sea fans. Again, Jess informed us of all the things we saw including a moray eel, stingrays, and a barracuda.
I highly recommend all of them at Aqua Marine for a wonderful adventure! They are very experienced and have excellent equipment.

It was a fabulous day and one of the highlights of our week!
It began with a referral for well organized transportation from the ship. We were greeted cheerfully and boarded the boat which was roomy and comfortable for our party. Anna and Steve took us to areas that weren’t crowded at all and the snorkeling was wonderful! They were really great with our teenagers too! Highly recommend Aqua Marine!!!
